the burden on the women. i've been out, we went out one time to mississippi. and we were there. and then we went up to birmingham, alabama. we were there. we heard the same story time and time again. a woman is being abused. the neighbor, woman, calls up and guess who goes to jail? the person who called in the abuse. command simply turns around and says that woman doesn't have papers. what this law enforcement do? that's why you have to separate law enforcement from immigration policy. the police is there to protect the people. [applause] and they have to protect the women and the family. i mean, it's fine intended to talk about safety, but we have to understand just how safety really has a corrosive effect. the police, their cars are important to them, protect them. their guns are important to them to protect us. they are communication, their training is important. but the most important tool, instrument that the police have, is the people and the cooperation of the people. and when you pass immigration law, they criminalize all immigrants and make them fear the police, you make all of us

cases for the kennedy justice department. in 1963 in mississippi, john stepped between angry protesters and armed police to prevent a potential massacre after the murder of medgar evers. and was the kind of lawyer later he was. years later, he gave me a photo with an inscription from tennyson's ulysses. to strive, to seek to a find, and not to yield. our nation's greatness is not a birthright. it must be earned by every generation. i am confident that we can earn it for this time. we are at our best one we live -- when we live our values, including our devotion to democracy and protection under the rule of law when we widen that circle of opportunity and extend dignity to all of our citizens. i believe strongly that that is what is called for today. have is no group that i more confidence in being able to rise and meet that challenge than the lawyers of america and particularly, the american bar association. thank you all very much.
